  • Biography

    Todd M. Cooper, DO, is an attending physician at Seattle Children's, professor of pediatrics at the University of Washington School of Medicine and the Evans Family Endowed Chair in Pediatric Cancer. Dr. Cooper is the section head of Oncology and director of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Program.

    Dr. Cooper's interests and expertise focus on the development of new therapeutic strategies for the treatment of acute leukemia in children. He initially helped develop Seattle Children’s High-Risk Leukemia Program and served as co-director of the program for eight years. Prior to coming to Seattle, Dr. Cooper developed and provided leadership for phase 1 developmental therapeutics programs at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta/Emory University. Dr. Cooper has led phase 1 studies of new agents for relapsed acute leukemia in a variety of national consortia including the Therapeutic Advances for Childhood Leukemia Consortium, Pediatric Oncology Experimental Therapeutics Investigator Consortium and the Children's Oncology Group (COG) Consortium.

    Dr. Cooper serves as the chair of the COG Myeloid Diseases Committee and actively collaborates internationally to help maintain a cohesive strategy for the treatment of children with acute leukemia. Dr. Cooper leads COG AAML1831, a COG phase 3 study for newly diagnosed children with AML. He is the co-lead of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Pediatric Acute Leukemia (PedAL) Initiative, an international clinical trial that matches children with novel targeted therapies based on centralized next-generation genomic sequencing. These opportunities have allowed him to engage with the Food and Drug Administration and European Medical Association in discussing individual new drugs and general clinical trial designs for children with relapsed acute leukemia.

    He is intimately involved in the selection of new treatments and in designing and leading clinical trials, all with the goal of bringing positive change to the therapy of children diagnosed with AML, both nationally and internationally.
